Kansas City Royals vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Betting Preview & Picks (05-10-2024)

Mike Trout is one of the best players in baseball. Also, Trout might be the greatest Los Angeles Angel in franchise history. What frustrates fans and gamblers with the baseball betting odds is that Trout’s greatness has not translated into team success. Since the 2010 season, the Angels have had only one playoff appearance. So far this season, the Angels have not shown any signs of ending that record of futility. Of great concern is that Trout is out indefinitely with a knee injury. On Friday night, the Angels host the surprising Kansas City Royals.
